About this product
- DescriptionAt last, the perfect society is a reality. But this isn't it. After seven years waiting and hoping, civil servant Nicholas Machida is finally on the list of Harvestees: one thousand lucky citizens hoping to qualify for addition to the great city of Euchaea. At last, he will be reunited with the fiance he was separated from seven years ago in the previous Harvest. At last, he can stop merely existing and look forward to actually living again. Unfortunately, his dream of becoming a member of this perfect society is suddenly shattered when a chance mugging forces him to kill a man, nullifying his potential admission. Plunged into a nightmarish spiral of fear and depression, Nicholas' world begins to crumble around him as everything he thought he knew about right and wrong, justice and injustice, rapidly falls apart. In addition to this, he soon also finds himself on the run from an uncannily efficient judicial system which itself appears to be perfect in every way. With just four days remaining until his Harvest, Nicholas is forced to place his trust and, potentially, his life in the hands of a select few friends and acquaintances, each of whom take a starkly different view of the Harvest and what it means. But which of them is right? In Nicholas Machida's final four days, he must do the impossible: first he must overcome his own debilitating guilty conscience, and second, he must find a way to escape the mysterious all-kwing systems running the city otherwise face the flip-side to the perfect society: the perfect punishment.
